Postcards from the Soviet Union
Updated: Dec 6, 2020
I took a trip to Uzbekistan in 2019 but when i got home i was pretty ill and could not really organise my photos properly. I revisited the trip during lockdown and came up with this series called 'Postcards from the Soviet Union'.
Uzbek is an interesting mix of ancient silk road fortresses and towns. Amazing mosaic architecture and ancient monuments. This is then starkly contrasted with the soviet buildings and architecture that can be seen alongside it. It couldn't be much more up my street as far as countries go.
I am really keen to visit more soviet countries and had planned to visit Ukraine and Belarus this year. I am looking forward to things being a bit safer and being able to get out exploring again and adding to this soviet series.
